After week 5 in the Sunday Beach Volleyball League, Just Da Tip – having won the B Division for the past two weeks – was looking to defend their title for the third week in a row. As pool play got under way, organizers said in a press release, it became clear that the pressure was too much and they failed to make it into the top four.
The Ultimates and I’d Hit That, on the other hand, emerged from regular pool play with a record of 3-0. They would go on to face Sandy’s Angels and Notorious DIG in the semis for their chance to make it to the finals.
I’d Hit That and Sandy’s Angels battled it out in a long-winded match, with I’d Hit That narrowly earning their spot in the finals with a score of 22-20. Meanwhile, on the other court, the Ultimates defeated Notorious DIG 21-16.
In the finals of the session, the top two teams of the competition, I’d Hit That beat The Ultimates 21-19. Unprotected Sets will be returning to the C Division for the final week.
That Ace Though and Kiss our Aces dominated the C Division as they both finished top of their pools with a 3-0 record. Is it In? secured their spot in the semis with a 2-1 record, and Poppin’ Volleys just barely made it to the semis as it boiled down to point differential due to a three-way tie.
The two top teams faced off in the semis, and That Ace Though came out on top, beating Kiss Our Aces 21-15. Is it in? were defeated in the semis by Poppin’ Volleys, 21-8. Going into the finals, That Ace Though seemingly underestimated their opponents, and as a result, Poppin Volleys won, 21-7.
The league finals will be on Seven Mile Public Beach next to Calico Jack’s on Sunday from 1-6 p.m. There will be raffle prizes, and all winning teams will receive prize packs.
